Haruto/Kamen Rider Wizard/Dragon Phantom
In addition to Flame Style, Wizard's forms will includeThe 5 elements in the Chinese Wu Xing:
Wizard will be just another pretty boy/teenager with attitudeStrictly Formula. Bonus points if he's a noob who picks up the belt and is instructed by someone on how to use it.
Wizard's super mode will involve ten ringsAnd he becomes The Mandarin from Iron Man.
Wizard will be a Jerk with a Heart of Gold.We've gotten two series in a row where the main Rider is a boy scout (three if count Double), so it would be refreshing to have an Anti-Hero lead for the first time since Decade. Though hopefully, Wizard will be better at this characteristic then he was.
Wizard's Super Mode will involve Heart.And then his ultimate mode will have that combined with the other four elements.
Wizard's Super Mode will involve magnetism.Naturally, he will have problems getting it to work.
Wizard is an homage to The Dresden FilesThe main character is a light-hearted smartass wizard who wears a trenchcoat, loves donuts, and his default fighting style is slinging fire; on top of that, one of his allies is a female cop who is one of the few to realize there's something supernatural going down, is frustrated that her co-workers are burying their heads in the sand, and wants to do something about it.
Wizard's Super Mode will involve a diamond as a motif.Just as how its Flame Style involves Ruby.
Wizard's catchphrase will be "Totally Wizard!"He's bringing it back!
Wizard will make a cameo appearance in All Kamen Rider: Rider Generation 2 as an unfinished secret characterMuch like how Fourze was an unfinished secret character in the first All Kamen Rider: Rider Generation.
The Rings as part of the Henshin Device makes senseRings are used in alchemy. In old times alchemy was considered a type of magic. Alchemy is the practice/art of changing one thing to another. Magic written in grimoires often involved summoning demons by wearing rings at the same time. The Magic using Kamen Rider that fights demons(known as Apparitions) uses rings to transform. To further this the enemy of the series were called on by a solar eclipse(for those that haven't seen one it the general concept is a dark circle with a ring of light around it.)
Wizard will be an amateur/budding stage magician prior to receiving The Call.This includes the following possibilities:
Wizard will eventually go on a killing spree to obtain more ringsHe's got Wajima to make rings for him. Why would he need to go on a killing spree to get more rings?
Wizard's WizarSwordGun is meant to double as his Magic Wand.Can you think of a better explanation for why he doesn't have a wand?
Possible future right-handed rings and powers.List your ideas for what other rings Wizard could obtain.

Land Dragon will be the Season's Mid-Season UpgradeBecause it is the only form not shown in recent news. Now, its design will be more grand compared to the other three.
In Competitive Balance among Wizard's StylesFlame is Glass Cannon, Water is Jack of All Stats, Hurricane is Fragile Speedster and Land is Mighty Glacier.
The Phantoms and Apparitions will all have Greek Mythology motif
Wizard will crossover with the next Sentai
At some point in the first episode there will be a time skipThis will allow for Wizard's cameo in the Fourze movie where he doesn't know what a Kamen Rider is but after finding out he decides to call himself Kamen Rider Wizard.
The Drago System will have a drawback effect on Haruto.
When Wizard transforms into Water Style, a blue magic circle will appear from his right sideIn addition to this, when he de-transforms, a magic circle appears from behind before moving to his front. Finally, when he finally transforms into his Super Mode, a magic circle appears from the front.
Wizard's end movie will involve the Draco System and Wizard's Super Mode combined!Wizard will get a Movie Exclusive Mode this way.
Haruto's Phantom is a dragon.
Kamen Rider Wizard can use the Liquid Ring in any style he wantsThe effects are turning him into the following:
The Henshin Magic Circle will be weaponizedSince Blade you can't have a WMG without this element coming up with at least once. I mean, come on guys.
Haruto has no sense of taste.Just how both Greeed and Phantom have no sense of taste and Eiji who partly Greeed lose his sense of taste, Haruto who is partly a Phantom also has no sense of taste. This explain why he only ate Plain Sugar Donuts as it doesn't matter whatever flavor that the donuts have if he can't taste it.
Haruto will NEVER get to finish a doughnut on screen.Possibly the exception will be in the final episode.
Haruto is Dead All AlongSorry if this is another WMG based off Madoka, but seriously, the sole survivor of a car crash is one of the backstories for the veteran Puella Magi, though in her back story, she was on the verge of dying. This could explain why he didn't succumb to Phantomization like the others... maybe.
Dragon is a Higher PhantomIt's clearly more powerful than other Inner Phantoms we've seen once Haruto's taken control, and when channeled for the Dragon Forms, makes Wizard even stronger than Phoenix. It's also got a more ornate design than other Inner Phantoms have, just like Medusa and Phoenix have more regal looking designs than the Lesser Phantoms.
The Three Rings would become three of Wizard's elemental rings.Hurricane Ring=Vilya, Water Ring=Nenya, Flame Ring=Narya.
The Driver will chant the following single word for the upcoming Dragon StylesIf you like, you can post your idea on the words, too.
We will get Wizard in all forms side by side in The Movie.He's got the Copy ring early on, no surprise there. It starts with Wizard using Copy until he gets 4 of himself, then the Big Bad claiming "we've seen that already", then actual!Wizard going roughly "but have you seen this?" just as the other 3 bring out the remaining 3 Styles rings and turning into Hurricane, Water and Land in very close succession, their belts sounds meshing together into a medley mix of sorts. Some ass gets kicked, involving the four Wizards tossing certain rings to each other for certain moves. Then actual!Wizard yells an order for all four Wizards to switch up to their Dragon Styles. More tossing of rings occurs, except this time the emphasis is on using the finishers on any Co-Dragons. Then the Big Bad still manages to beat them back, forcing actual!Wizard to pull all the copies into himself - enabling a movie-exclusive form rather than the actual Ultimate Form. Dragged-out beatdown ensues.
The Dragon styles are going to prove to be a deadly upgrade.Considering that they allow aspects of Dragon, Haruto's inner Phantom, to manifest in reality, it's possible that overuse of them might allow Dragon to increase its influence on Haruto in an attempt to break out. As a result, Haruto's going to have to learn to use them sparingly lest he accidentally unleash his own Phantom. Plus Dragon did tell him that use of the ring would lead him closer to despair...
Wizard can swim underwaterIn Water Dragon Style, by activating his Special Ring and gain a tail.
Haruto will dieAs a result of his continuing use of the Dragon forms, he gives in to despair at or near to the series conclusion, being replaced by Dragon. However Dragon, impressed by Haruto's determination to save others, even at the cost of his own life, will turn against the Phantoms to finish what he started.
At some point, Haruto will nearly succumb to being a PhantomBut it will be ambiguous as to if he really did become one or if he bravely resisted. In short: By the end, we won't be sure if it's Haruto or Dragon that's Wizard.
The infinity ring represents the fifth elementWith it being something like Heart, which has the power of using any one of the four elements. It also comes with an Infinity Dragon Ring.
Wizard will have no "official" mid-season upgrade.The Dragon Styles are kinda' like that so they'll just stick with these 8 forms until episode 30ish when the FINAL form comes around.
Haruto is already the Dragon Phantom. But it's not the dominating personality, so he can control his kaiju nature (a la Faiz).
The Dragon is actually the Wiseman's PhantomThe Wiseman is just a powerful magic user who knows that his Phantom will kill him, so he sets up a ritual to have the phantom take on someone else.
The Dragon is actually the White Wizard's Phantom
Haruto will fail to prevent a gate from turning into a PhantomJust so we can see the process. Like in Fourze they failed to prevent Cancer from evolving.
The Draco System will manifest when the dragon Haruto has starts to consume him
The Wizardriver is, in fact, a technological device.And no, I'm not talking about the toy. In-universe, The Wizard Wizard built and programmed it to create spells based on the ring it scans. In fact, Kamen Rider Wizard is not much of a wizard at all because he cannot cast spells himself, only through the use of rings and the Wizardriver.
Wizard's 5th Style would be Aether Style.
At some point, WizarDragon will escape from within Haruto......(possibly via portal), robbing Haruto of his magic (and thus the ability to become Wizard). Haruto will then have to find a non-Phantom source of magic (assuming he doesn't just get it from courage, of course)
Haruto is being used by the White WizardBasing this off the fact that the secondary rider is the naive newcomer while the main rider is the hardened veteran who has a mentor watching his every move. A reversal of the usual shtick for the Neo-Heisei riders. So it's natural that Haruto might be used to further White Wizard's plans.
The Death Card Manticore predicted for Harutorefers to another event altogether.
The other Wizards that were summoned through the Drago Timer areThe Dragon Phantom being Wizard Water Dragon, a phantom named "Please" (see below WMG for more info) being the Hurricane Dragon, and another phantom called "Saiko" being the Land Dragon.
The movie form will be Five StyleThe costume will resemble a Do Ga Ba Ki where all the parts are mixed into one suit.
"Plain sugar donut." will become a Wham LineHaruto will go missing/presumed dead for a while and theaudience and/or the characters will not know anything about where he is. At one point we hear the donut sellers, who don't know that Haruto is missing have the following conversation: "Oh, hello there! Do you want your usual?" (Beat) "Here you go, Plain sugar donut." And He's Back Alternately in a smaller version: Haruto has been acting slightly odd the last few episodes and this reveals he has an Evil Doppelganger or something.
Wiseman was responsible for making Haruto Kamen Rider Wizard.It’s been irking me as to why the Dragon Phantom is so powerful, with the only thing holding Wizard back being how much of Dragon’s power he can access. Maybe Wiseman recognised Haruto’s potential as a gate, and set about a chain of events that would Haruto to become a Wizard during the ritual, most notably causing the deaths of Haruto’s parents. Wiseman caused their car to crash and made sure they lived long enough to Haruto a last hope.
Infinity Style will be created from Haruto's own power, not Dragon's.For whatever reason (maybe Dragon escapes his body or is incapacitated, or any number of things), Haruto is unable to use Dragon's power to transform and cast magic. He will then have to tap into his own latent magical ability, which has been slowly growing in the background and has become great enough to create his final form.
By the time the Infinity Ring is created....Haruto has complete dominion over his Dragon Phantom.
Infinity Style's AxcaliburCan do Sword Beam in Axe Mode.
Wizard's movie-exclusive form is called Final Style.If the above unreleased spells indicates so.
There is no Infinity Dragon StyleBecause Infinity Style alone is greater than the Dragon Styles.
Kamen Rider Wizard Infinity's theme songWill be sung by BOTH Kamen Rider Girls and Rider Chips.
Infinity Style will involve Dragon no longer being a Phantom.Instead, he'll go the Ascended Demon route and become a creature based off of Hope. Perhaps the manner in which he's revived after Legion killed him will result in this.
Infinity Style will NOT be his final FINAL formDue to some simlarities with Kuuga, one could argue there is another powerup left. It will be activated in the final episode (or two) Just like Ultimate Kuuga. It will be called...wait for it...Final Style.
Him gaining the Infinity Style will turn out to be a bad thingHence White Wizard's cryptic message after he sees Haruto transform.
The infinity stone is actually a Philosopher's stone
Haruto himself is the Philosopher's Stone.But he's not finished yet. Gaining the Dragon Styles was an important part of the process, though, hence why Wiseman had no problem allowing the good guys to get the necessary magic stones.
Dragon is now a creature of hope rather than despairWhen he was born, it was by Haruto skirting the Despair Event Horizon, what brought him back to life was Haruto's determination not to lose hope and be others hope. So where he was born from despair, he was reborn by hope, thus how he can now give Haruto access to Infinity Style, because hope is stronger than despair.
The White Wizard
White Wizard junks the longcoat to become the second Rider.His suit actor is Eitoku, who gets that job anyways...
The White Wizard is Haruto's father.Because it's about time someone's relative became the Big Good without being dead.
The Bigger Bad is the White Wizard
Wajima IS the White WizardMaking rings is one hint, taking Haruto and Koyomi is probably another, depending on how they exactly met.
White Wizard is the Virgo Zodiarts!... Wait, wrong show. Plus Virgo's kinda dead.
The White Wizard will show up again to help Haruto when he's in serious trouble.Haruto is his successor to an extent, right? so why not?
There's actually several White Wizards out there.Each of them is the highest authority in magic, and thus their facepieces are differently colored for each style they command while the rest of the suit is uniform. The one we've seen is Orange, not as an evolution from Yellow but because that actually is Orange magic, the others not only have the proper colors of Red, Green, Blue and Yellow, but a dozen other colors we're never getting in the show otherwise.
The White Wizard is behind the ritual!All to get a new wizard.
The White Wizard will be revealed as Seiji TakaiwaBecause why not.
The White Wizard is Haruto's *mother.*Not like we haven't seen it elsewhere. Of course, we know what that would mean for her. In fact...
The White Wizard is *so* doomed....it's not like mentor or power-giving characters have a great survival rate lately anyway. Prepare to join Emoto, Skull, and Shroud six feet under! You (and your Badass Longcoat) shall be missed. In fact in fact...
The White Wizard is already dead....have we seen him in the present? Soukichi Narumi is dead before the series starts as well.
The White Wizard is an Anthropomorphic Personification of HopeWhat better Big Good for a series where the villains are born of Despair?
Wajima is somehow connected to the White Wizard.While I doubt he actually is the White Wizard, maybe he once worked with or works for the White Wizard. It's also possible that the White Wizard is responsible for giving him the ability to craft Wizard's rings.
Agent Kizaki is the White WizardGoing for broke.
The White Wizard is the one telling Wajima what rings to make.Probably a given, but we know White's watching over Haruto, and Wajima has a tendency to make just the ring Haruto needs. WW's probably secretly beaming the information into Wajima's mind as a way of indiscreetly helping our protagonist.
There was another ritual before the one Haruto survived in.And in that ritual, a person was sole survivor and became The White Wizard.
There is one transformation ring that a person used to become The White WizardAnd ring is the Infinity Ring.
That guy wearing a hat and who gave Koyomi the yellow magic stone is the White WizardJossed.
The White Wizard is an antagonistic/anti-hero rider.When scanned a rings gives the command "NOW!"
This isn't the first time The White Wizard has raised a WizardIn #23, he says as Haruto unlocks the All-Dragon Form: "And now, this one is complete."
The White Wizard could cast the same spells (Like Explosion and Teleport) without using any of his rings.However, it will be so time-consuming that Rings are a much faster choice.
His inner phantom is humanoid.Even when it is an Unreleased Phantom. This is based on the prints of the rings The White Wizard used.
The White Wizard and Wiseman have an Jekyll and Hyde relationship.Years ago, the White Wizard was merely a Gate. He eventually gave into despair, and gave birth to Wiseman. However, like Haruto, he survived the process and become a Wizard. Unlike Haruto, unfortunately, the phantom was not sealed within him as successfully. And so they share the same body, swapping personalities often. The White Wizard is unable to kill himself because either Wiseman won't let him or dying will mean Wiseman will be in full control. The whole season is about the two trying to Out Gambit the other. And both of their plans involve Haruto and the Dragon Phantom.
The White Wizard's magical power comes entirely from himself, no Phantoms involved.Unlike Wizard's rings bearing dragon images or Beast's rings all having animal faces, the White Wizard's either have elements of his helmet on them or show a stick figure, implying that he's not getting his power from another source. On top of that, his belt announcing each spell with "...now!" would make sense, as he has no need to borrow his magic from something else (as the two Riders do with their Phantoms).
The White Wizard will become the upgrade for Wizard's final form.No, not the source of it. Let's be honest, there's a good chance he's going to die, but what if he finds a way to live on, and give his star pupil another power boost at a critical time? It would certainly explain why Infinity Style is white and has a few design elements in common with White Wizard's costume.
Wajima is the White Wizard.It's suspicious that the White Wizard would send Haruto to someone who knows how to make rings. Also, the White Wizard was never seen asking for Haruto's name yet he knows who he is at #27. Then during #28, the White Wizard's them plays over when Wajima talks.
Someone will give the White Wizard a What the Hell, Hero?And his response will be a solemn "I Did What I Had to Do".
The White Wizard's Phantom is the Man in the Moon PhantomHis Instant Runes have a moon motif to them and his rings all have a humanoid shape on them, so why not?
The White Wizard is a test by the show's producers how people will react to a "third" RiderIn hopes of doing a multi-Rider series in the near future.
The White Wizard's reaction to Infinity Style was because its not the evolutionary path he wanted Haruto to followHe seemed to dislike the development no because of evil intent, but because he wanted Haruto to go a different path (perhaps evolving into another White Wizard), but Infinity Style is a separate path. Like how Shroud's original intent was Double CycloneAccel Xtreme.
The White Wizard commented on how it was a nuisance that he just pops up only to see Haruto kick ass instead of him.He was really depressed that Haruto got to kick Phoenix's and Legion's asses.
The White Wizard is Gremlin.Either "White Wizard" or "Sora" - or both - is just a persona; simultaneously mentoring Haruto from a distance and getting close to Wiseman to leech information. ...Okay, I know this one was pre-Jossed since they appeared in the same scene at the end of the two-parter with Mayu. I was just amused by the idea of the Trickster pretending to be the Straight Man as part of his schemes. (*imagines White Wizard saying a singsong "Hello~!"*)
The White Wizard is SoraIn a manner similar to Koyomi, Sora survived his transformation into a Phantom. Whatever happened caused Gremlin to think he's Sora, while the real Sora thinks of himself as another person.
The White Wizard is Koyomi's PhantomBecause why not?
The White Wizard will either fight or try to kill Haruto.Possibly because of something relating to Haruto unlocking Infinity (His comment was pretty ominous, after all), or something to do with Wiseman's plans for Haruto, whatever they are.
The White Wizard is Haruto from the future!Except he is supposed to be his final form, not Infinity.
The White Wizard is Daffy Duck.He is the WIZAAAAAAAAAAARD! The mystical WIZAAAAAAAAAAARD! *
If the White Wizard scans some of the joke rings. they have a more serious effect.Smell turns into Smoke when used by his belt, so maybe he upgrades the rest of Wizards rings if he uses them.
The White Wizard is Chiaki's father.They made a huge point of her father disappearing and "watching her from a distance," and the enforced connection with the color white. And he didn't show up at the end, just sending her a letter. That's one hell of a wasted setup if this isn't the case.
Who is the Wiseman?
The Big Bad of the series will be similar to MandarinUsing Ten rings in contrast to the riders usage of five. Bonus if he/she has all the Rider powers combine. Co-Dragons are finished, our heroes only find an empty lair - cue Wiseman's voice saying (not to them, more like narration) that he's moving on to other targets... then cue the reveal of the Rider Worlds.
Wiseman is the same Wiseman from Sailor Moon.Sailor Moon's Wiseman turn Chibi-Usa evil by making her give into despair which is how the Phantom are born.
The Big Bad/Final Boss will be an evil rider.Pheonix and Medusa follow someone who goes by "Wiseman" who could very likely be a fallen or dark wizard. If he doesn't have some sort of monstrous form, it seems possibly that he would be a kamen rider. In addition, Wizard shares parallels with Garo what with the villains being demons born from human malice who take over the form of those they were created from. The final villain of Garo was an evil makai knight, so it is a possibility that the similarities may carry further.
Wajima is the Wiseman.] An alternative to my above WMG concerning Wajima and the White Wizard, Wajima may actually be the Wiseman. Either he doesn't remember and is convinced he is a regular human being, he is hiding it for some unknown purpose, or he's trying to atone for his crimes as a Phantom by helping Haruto (If this turns out to be true, someone new might take over as the "second" Wiseman, possibly Phoenix). As such, I propose three "sub-theories":
No one, since the Wiseman subplot will drop faster than you can say retool
The Wiseman is...An Incubator who has mastered magic to make it so that anyone can become a Witch, and not just Puella Magi.
Agent Kizaki is the WisemanThe reason why he wants to keep the Masquerade up is because he doesn't want his secret revealed. Plus his position in the NSA would easily allow him to round up all the Gates for the ritual in the beginning.
The Donut Shop Hungry Manager is the Wiseman.Hey, it could happen!
Wiseman is a yet another phantomAlbeit being higher among the highers.
Wiseman is Koyomi's Phantom.Which explains why she's so special.
Wiseman is the White Wizard's phantomThe latter survived the phantom bursting out of him, and that result in a Split Personality. Wiseman's goal is to completely take over White Wizard's body by bringing him to despair. Which is by making more phantoms.
Eventually, Wise will have Five-Bad BandWith himself as the Big Bad, a Dragon Their Feet higher phantom, Phoenix as The Brute, Medusa as The Evil Genius and a newly-made phantom as The Dark Chick.
Wiseman is a Disc One Final Boss.The rumored Super Mode for Wizard is supposed to be multicolored, which will require rings made of multicolored stones - like the stones forming part of Wiseman's design.
That guy wearing a hat and who gave Koyomi the yellow magic stone is WisemanThat's his human form.
Wiseman is a Phantom that came from a Phantom that came from Phantom that came from a GateYo, dawg
Wiseman is the White Wizard
Wiseman's goal is to perform the Sabbath on a much larger scale than before.He wants to gather enough Mana to perform a ritual involving the alignment of the planets to release every single phantom from every single Gate in the world. This will destabilise Human civilization, effectively letting Wiseman take over the world. Haruto is instrumental to these plans, and he needs him, and in extension, Dragon, to become strong enough to allow him to perform the ritual.
Wiseman is the Gemini Zodiarts.Well, he kinda looks like a Villainous Harlequin. Funnily enough, Gremlin's human form has a playing card motif, despite them very likely being separate characters.
Wiseman and White Wizard are Haruto in differents timelines.
The White Wizard is The WisemanHas this been considered? Both White Wizard and Wiseman support Haruto getting the Dragon Stones and using his Dragon-themed forms, and when Haruto goes into Infinity Form, White Wizard notes how that's not what he wants.
The second Rider will be a womanThe reason Wizard will have so many forms is to still have a strong market with the young boys while they try something new with a female Rider in a strong role as the second Rider in the series. And also, she will not die.
There will be no secondary RidersThe reason Wizard will have so many forms is because of this. The previous Riders returning in the series may or may not happen.
There will be at least a 3rd Rider in this seriesIf the rumor on the second rider being Kamen Rider Dice is true, then it will debut early compared to Meteor, Birth or Accel. Then later in the series, the 3rd rider debuts.
The second rider will have a sci-fi motifAnd he's behind the creation of the Robot Buddy.
The second rider will look like Zetman, but with Alphas's colour schemeBecause Wizard looks like Alphas with Zetman's colour scheme.
The Secondary Rider will be technologicalThe intro mentions how Magic used to exist in symbiosis with Technology. Possibly, they will have to again to finally save the day.
The Second Rider will REFUSE to allow Haruto to use the Engage Ring on themThey will grab his arm and tell him something along the lines of 'I haven't given up yet' and through Heroic Willpower survive like he did.
The Second Rider will be indirectly responsible for someone's despairWhich lead to a new phantom.
Kamen Rider Beast is, himself, a PhantomHe is the "Beast".
There will be 6 or 7 Riders total......and all their Phantom beasts combine into a ginormous monster, if the size of the Dragon foot is any indication.
Kamen Rider Beast will work at the Donuts ShopTo give the shop more screenies.
Officer Kizaki will be Kamen Rider BeastHe had a bigger role in episodes 10-11, had a good characterization and there's the Ki in his name, that means yellow, Beast's main color.
A new character will be Kamen Rider BeastConfirmed. This should've been obvious, though.
Kamen Rider Beast will be Kamen Rider Wizard's apprenticeFor example, Beast will handle a lesser phantom while Wizard can go ahead and battle an unreleased phantom within a gate.
Kamen Rider Beast will be created on-screen.Instead of had always been there.
Kamen Rider Beast will be an Unwitting PawnBecause it happened before.
Shunpei will become Beast
Kamen Rider Beast will hold a yellow gemstone
Beast will ride on his Chimera PhantomJust as how Wizard rides on his motorbike. In the underworlds, of course.
Beast is going to be the one to put Phoenix down, once and for all.Phoenix requires mana to revive. Beast consumes the mana of Phantoms. Put two and two together.
Kosuke Nito is not a gate.He is just a muggle; the magical potential when changes him into Kamen Rider Beast lies in the belt instead.
Beast will using the Griffon Ring with the Dice SabreGiven how that ring is shaped like the Chimera Color rings.
Beast could have replenish his mana easilyHe could either eat sugary food or those high in carbohydrates just like Haruto or wear a Please Ring for Wizard to activate whenever he's low on mana.
Chimera is lying about the mana consumption thing.Oh come on, it's a Phantom. The episode already has one of them taking advantage of Beast being an idiot to do what they want, who's to say Chimera wasn't too? Chimera could easily be doing the same thing Medusa was planning, or it just wants more power for itself.
The purpose of consuming other Phantom's mana is to make a ringSpecifically, one that gives Beast a Super Mode.
Beast CAN use the Wizard Rings.Instead of using them in the slot he uses for his Mants, he has to use them where he uses his main transformation ring.
Beast ThoughtsBeast will eventually become friends with Wizard since Wizard doesn't need Mana to live and in fact produces it. Leading to fast Bash Brothers with Wizard calling in Beast to eat the Phantoms and Ghouls he mops up.
Wizard will, somehow, gain the ability to use Beasts Mantles as an alternate/further power-up......with each mantle being paired/merged with a particular Style, resulting in Flame Falcon Style, Water Dolphin Style*, the colour-mismatched Land Buffalo Style and the sounds-strange-but-is-surprisingly-effective Hurricane Chameleon Style (not necesserily in that order)
Alternate Beast SpellsWe know that when used with the Wizardriver the Beast rings give different spells
Mayu will return in a later episode as a female tertiary Rider....Possibly named Kamen Rider Witch.
And she is doomed.Though it was once law, it hasn't happened since Decade, even teased but averted with Nadeshiko... and that's why it will happen this time. You're no longer expecting it, no longer desensitized. Mayu will return in a few episodes, suit up, be awesome, and get killed the second everyone relaxes.
Mayu being the new Kamen RiderMay as well post the ideas here. For those who don't know what happened, Mayu can hold back her Phantom like Haruto, and thus, White Wizard took her so he can train her to be a new wizard, aka, a female rider. So, post you ideas. The ongoing theory is that she will be Kamen Rider Witch, and have the ability to summon a Phantom's inner gate.
Beast's mana-consuming capabilities were an inspiration for whoever developed the purple Core Medals.The Medagabryu axe "eats" cell medals (tangible desire) and it makes the same noise as when Beast consumes mana. Swiss Army Weapon Ring, where she could use it in many ways.
The Monsters of the series will be called on using ringsBetween the magic element of the series and the rings as a transformation device, this just seemed too logical to not put in. Bonus points if they're named after Goetic Demons.
The Monster of the Week will have card motifsSomething close to Kamen Rider Blade.
Monster of the Week will have based on Mythical AnimalsIf Rings are to be used by the villains too, and the Fire Style's Dragon implies anything.
Monster of the Week will be based off tarot cardsThere's about twenty-six of them, and that's usually enough Monsters of the Week to last a Kamen Rider show these days.
The Solar Eclipse Ritual and the fact that the two survivors were there to begin with will be a major plotpoint.Doesn't anyone else think it's a bit too coincidental that someone just happened to have the transformation belt on hand to give to Souma when he survived the Ritual. I'm thinking a magic user from the future, maybe even a reference to Kessler for the greater plot behind this.
This year's supporting character hang-out will be a casino or casino-themed business.What do Wizards (magicians) and Dice have in common? They're both featured in casinos.
Shunpei is going to die towards the end of the series.Right now, we're 3/3 on the "close associate of the main Rider" character dying at the end of the series (them being Philip, Ankh, and Kengo). Shunpei being the "young apprentice" would probably make him the most likely target. *
The ritual is sponsored by Foundation X.They've been the Big Bad since Kamen Rider Double, appears in Kamen Rider OOO (The movie though) and reappears again in Fourze. It seems the writer intends to make Foundation X the Big Bad in the 10th Kamen Rider series counting from Kamen Rider Decade.
There will be at least one Gate surviving a Phantom bursting out of him/herSomehow.
There will be a Phantom who thinks it is its GateThey've done it before.
Each of the unborn Apparition take on a bestial version of their born selvesIt also explains why Wizardragon is bestial. Haruto said himself he didn't give up hope and instead houses a Phantom within him. The only question that remains is what would Phantom would have been born from Rinko.
Kamen Rider 1 will appear in the Grand Finale.
The Solar Ritual was a set-up scam.It invites people with empty promises of instant successes, only to trap them in an island. While the ritual is performed.
At some point, something similar to the Nerve-Breaking Bullets will be developed.It's pretty clear Rinko's chances of being the Second Rider are, well, pretty awful. But this would let her actually do stuff while not getting in the way of those sweet, sweet stay-at-home-mom ratings.
Here is how the Fourze X Wizard movie Villain worksFirst, he had been using a Zodiarts switch out of vengence of other stuff. He has also been working with the Phantoms, only to be double-crossed. In a Despair Event Horizon, the switch activate is Last One phrase. The bad guy transforms, leaving his body behind. The body then cracks and pops out a new Phantom. Bonus point if both the Zodiarts and Phanton combine into a bonus boss.
At some point a Lunar Eclipse will be a plot point
Agent Kizaki (specs National Security Agency Section 0 man in Ep. 2) is the Hellhound PhantomAnd he really doesn't want the police's 'help' one bit.
Agent Kizaki is a Phantom
Agent Kizaki is a Gate
Koyomi is an automaton beingShe is like a robot, except powered by magic.
Shunpei's Magic is from HellhoundJust so he can build up his hope and then dash it to pieces to induce the Dispair Event Horizon
Koyomi will end up being the Wiseman.Mainly because we've had character-based plots like this for the last three years:
The Donut Shop has a Bait and Switch scenarioContrary to their stereotypical mannerism, the manager isn't the gay person. His assistance is. In fact, the manager intentionally behave like a woman to avoid sexual harassment.
Wajima will make a Flame Ring
The Phantoms are doing what they're doing for the greater goodIf their similarities to the Incubators are anything to behold, they might be saving the world in the long run. Expect the heroes to call 'em out regardless.
A second race of good Kaijin will be born of Hope.There will be a race of angelic beings born of Hope, the Good Counterpart to the Despair born demons that are the Phantoms. Normal Phantoms can become them as well, but only under special circumstances.
The Hellhound is immune to fireAnd that's why Kamen Rider Wizard's finishing move in #2 did not work.
Foundation X is involved somehow
Alternatively, the ones responsible for the coverup are not Foundation X but......the Showa Riders themselves, having cut off Foundation X's connection to the Phantoms (and never learning about Wiseman till it's too late), and ruling that it's for the good of mankind that the truth doesn't get out until they can fix things. This involves watching over the current Riders to make sure they're up to the job.
It will be revealed that during the Eclipse Ritual, the White Wizard and Wiseman were fighting it outThat's why White Wizard just happened to be there; he was trying to stop the ritual (which may very well be what Wiseman's Sabbath is (they said 'once again' meaning he's done it before), but Wiseman interfered and stopped him. He did, however, manage to save Koyomi. He gave Haruto the Wizardriver out of guilt for not stopping the ritual, as well as to have an ally that could help him in the future. As for where he is now, he's off trying to track down Wiseman, knowing he can trust Haruto to handle the Phantoms in the meantime.
We will remember ALL the new guys.All of the phantoms we see in the Ritual flashback will appear in the series, one way or another.
Related to the above...We will meet assorted people Haruto had helped between the ritual and #1. Just a shot of their rings will be enough.
If Wizard ever teams up with Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters, there will be a problem involving a shortage of sweets.Since both Haruto and Yoko need them to fuel themselves...
Rinko will reveal she has an uncle...... Named Yutaka Daimon.
The Phantoms are metaphors to Real Life people.Those who succumb to despair turn for the worse.
Phoenix can regenerate From a Single Cell.
Phoenix will avert Villain Forgot to Level GrindPhoenix was defeated by Wizard, but not Killed Off for Real. He doesn't seem like the kind of person to take someone being stronger than him. He'll find a way to get progressively stronger and be The Rival.
A Muggle will bring a Gate into despair and turns him/her into a PhantomIntentional or otherwise.
Koyomi's Phantom is so smallThat it could squeeze itself from Koyomi's body instead of bursting inside-out.
Koyomi is Haruto's sisterThat will be the big reveal down the road.
The Phoenix Phantom can by killed permanently by water.Because Fire-types are weak against Water-types.
The Phoenix Phantom can only revive a set number of times.It's a matter of how many.
The Phoenix Phantom needs a HUGE amount of mana to revive.So, to kill him off for good, just stall and tire him out first.
Shunpei will learn white magic.As in using tricks and secretive, yet logical methods instead of using sorcery.
Wizard has a second Phantom inside him named "Please"This is why his upgraded Flame Style causes the Wizar Driver to switch from "Flame, Please" to "Flame, Dragon" (rather than "Flame Dragon, Please"); it's switching power sources.
If a Gate can use magic from his/her own mana,Despair will not create a phantom within.
Medusa will die mid-way through the seriesTo be replaced with another higher Phantom.
Gremlin will officially take Phoenix's place as Co-Dragon with Medusa.The Gremlin Phantom finally gets named in the same episode Phoenix gets kicked into the sun, so it seems possible.
The car crash that claimed Gentaro's parents are the same as the ones that claimed Haruto's
The car crash was caused by a Phantom, or another monster
In the crossover movie, there will be a scene were Haruto and Gentaro talk about how they both lost their parents.Both's parents were claimed by a car accident. Both didn't give into despair (though Haruto has Survivor Guilt), perhaps both with bond by talking about the tragedy they both suffered.
The next few story arcs will debut the following:Wizard Water Dragon Style, then Kamen Rider Beast, then showcasing the latter in an underworld battle and finally, Wizard Land Dragon Style.
The show has a Bolivian Army Ending.As the Phantom threat reaches a peak, Koyomi makes a Heroic Sacrifice - she reopens as a Gate to let Haruto/Wizard enter in the opposite direction. He passes through Koyomi's Underworld, finds the point of Phantom origin and charges at it in All Dragon form, shoving it back where it came while following it in, forever sealing himself in the Phantom world where he lures Phantoms away from Gates and towards himself, and goes on a rampage and kills them all... eventually.
Tsuyoshi Kida or Junko Kōmura is a pen name for Gen UrobuchiHe learned from what happened at Madoka, and so he decided to get a pen name a la Saburo Yatsude.
Meanwhile, back in the island,Most female phantoms are bred by one single male phantom, giving birth to lots of baby phantoms.
Koyomi's going to bite it, whether permanently or temporarily.See also: Philip, Ankh, Kengo.
The White Wizard and Wiseman are playing a "game" of sorts, and one of the rules is that neither can directly interfere.Which would explain why they haven't both just gone and fought each other already. The stunt that White pulled with the red magic stone was pushing it greatly, so he stepped back a bit and got the next two to Haruto via less direct means.
Wiseman is the White Wizard's Phantom
All Ghouls come from one single phantom
That guy wearing a hat and who gave Koyomi the yellow magic stone is another Phantom entirelyDude has a completely different personality compared to Wiseman's.
Phoenix will still came back from the dead even when defeated by Kamen Rider Beast.However, it will take a couple of episodes for a phantom to use its abilities to summon mana for Phoenix to somehow use in order to revive.
The guy with the hat is another Leader Phantom.Maybe Phoenix will die soon and he'll replace him.
Phoenix will finally die in the next episode (#20).It appears that that episode will be revealing the story of his Gate,
Before Phoenix was bornYugo (a Gate) was in a receiving end of Abuse Is Okay When It's Female on Male by his wife. Bonus point if Phoenix ended up kicking the bitch.
There is an in-universe reason to why magic is no longer usedIt has something to do with the phantoms.
Either the White Wizard or the Wiseman is the Ouroboros Phantom.Serving as a counterpart to Haruto's Dragon and use of rings
The people chosen for that ritual are specifically selectedNot only they are Gates, but being abandoned in an island out of nowhere makes them vulnerable to despair.
There will be a new type of Phantom that comes about when a pre-existing one somehow falls into despairA being brought into this world through the despair of its host falling into despair itself seems like something that would have some interesting potential.
Wizard's Super Mode will be necessitated when a new form of Phantom arisesIn a tie-in to the previous WMG, this new Phantom will require a more powerful form to combat.
Both Wizard and Beast will take Phoenix down together.Bonus points for Beast dealing a finishing blow. Or absorbing mana after Wizard finished Phoenix off.
Medusa will try to absorb mana from Kamen Rider BeastOr the other way around.
Beast will save Wizard at the beginning of #23 and kick Phoenix's ass, forcing the phantom to retreat.Phoenix has never battled Beast, with without any resistance against his magic, Beast is going to whoop him.
The Gremlin Phantom will be killed by Wizard Land DragonThe biggest regret that phantom could make was to have Haruto a source for that form.
Medusa will be the one killed in the next episode (#23), not PhoenixAfter being blasted by Wizard's finishing move, Phoenix revives once again. Then Medusa is instructed to finish him off, only to be successfully fought back and fried by him.
Gremlin is going to be the real Big Bad.He's almost definitely one of the higher Phantoms, considering that he seems to be on an equal level to Medusa and Phoenix, even if he is helping them both out (albeit for his own purposes). However, compared to Phantoms like those two, and Dragon and Chimera, a gremlin seems really lackluster. Watch as he reveals that he has a powered-up form that evolves him into a more suitably awesome creature, taking over the whole Phantom organization (maybe even stabbing Wiseman in the back while he's at it). Plus, his Gate's name means "sky," a good counterpart to the two Riders whose Phantoms are both flying creatures.
Phoenix will get so strong that he will withstand the sun's flamesand become an immortal god.
Phoenix will be the Big Bad in a movieEither Wizard's upcoming movie or the next magic-themed Kamen Rider's.
Phoenix will return later in the series, stronger than ever.He will leave the sun somehow, even stronger than before, and will appear just in time to fight a Rider's new Super Mode. Possibly, Beast could absorb him and gain enough power to access his Super Mode.
Gremlin had a reason for egging on Phoenix.He is trying to get closer to the Wiseman, and saw Phoenix as an obstacle, so he tried to get rid of him by getting him to fight Wizard. As for why he would do that, it's possible that he is The Starscream, and is looking to betray the Phantoms and take over.
Gremlin is the White Wizard's Phantom.He is playing the Phantoms from within to try and stop them. The playful trollish attitude is just a cover he's trying to maintain, and the reason why he went to Haruto as himself instead of the White Wizard was because he was trying to maintain his cover. He also seemed to know that Wizard beat Phoenix, similar to how last season, Tachibana knew that Cancer was defeated, foreshadowing his reveal as being Virgo.
Rinko's decision to treat all Phantoms like the monsters they are will bite her in the ass.A phantom who really is good (like what she thought Phoenix was) will show up, but because of past experience, she will treat it like a villain, leading to numerous interrupted cooldown hugs and Nice Job Breaking It, Hero moments worse than what happened with Phoenix.
In Medusa's previous life, Misa was a fashion modelJudging by her clothing.
Phoenix is actually gone for good.Crazy, I know, but it could be possible...
#25 is the episodeWhere Beast recognize himself as a Kamen Rider.
Phantoms getting killed off are still part of Wiseman's plan.Even if the phantoms were unreleased.
Wajima is a Phantom who doesn't know that he's a Phantom.Like they say above, they've done it before.
In order for a Gate to become a Phantom another Phantom must be presentThe other Phantom would act as a beacon to the new Phantom when the Gate falls into despair. Otherwise Phantoms would be created all the time whenever some Gate falls into despair on their own. This could be why the original ceremony was needed to create so many Phantoms at once.
Gremlin will try to pull an 'Enter'.He will try to overthrow Wiseman and replace him as the new Wiseman. The key difference, however, will be that he will fail. Wiseman will either kill him, weaken him, leave him to be killed/absorbed by the Riders, or somehow steal all of his mana himself.
Medusa will be replacedBy a phantom coming from her own sister.
Twins create the same phantomsMedusa's case will be an example.
A phantom has to be sacrificed in the Sabbath Ritual, to turn the Gates into new Phantoms.A strong one, particularly.
Infinity Ring will come from Mayu instead of WisemanFirst hint is her phantom's crystal bodies.
IF Phoenix came backHe'll just be yet another Monster of the Week.
Phoenix will return......in a crossover movie. The movie's main villain will have the power to get him out of the sun. But he is out of Wizard's storyline for good.
Mayu will become Young Masked Belle Poitrine
Mayu will not return as a Kamen RiderInstead, she becomes a Pretty Cure. Still refered to as a magician though.
The next Kamen Rider will involve international travelTurns out the past few Kamen Rider correspond to an earlier string of Super Sentai:
Guesses for Mayu's Phantom
Gremlin's Gate has influenced him in somewayThey've been hinting at the idea that the Gate could be alive somewhere inside the Phantom with both Phoenix and Medusa, though both were shot down pretty quickly, with the latter's case having Haruto state that they're just using memories from the Gate. From his hesitation to comment further, it could be that he doesn't really know himself, and thus the possibility is there, just not as high as we expect it to be. Enter Sora, who had appeared around the time Phoenix was getting the shaft. He's different from the other two Phantoms, in which he's pretty friendly, if trolly, and addresses the Phantoms by their Gate's name. Definitely not something you'd expect from a Phantom. Could it be that the Gremlin's Gate has some influence surrounding him and is alive somewhere? Might explain why he helps the heroes at times and how he takes being called a Phantom. Confirmed. Gremlin denies that he is 'Gremlin' to Wiseman, and identifies himself as Sora.
Gremlin is The Mole for the White WizardHe's helped out the heroes on a few occasions and knew Medusa's plan, even though there's no indication she told him (her reaction implies she didn't), but Cerberus was seen watching Medusa and Maya, meaning the White Wizard did. This could also explain why he's trolling Medusa.
There will be an episode where Haruto fails to save a gateThis will lead to a Heroic BSOD, which allows the Dragon to take more control over him.
Medusa will turn Gremlin into stoneBonus point if he didn't see it coming.
Wiseman's goal isn't to create PhantomsInstead his goal is to create powerful mages. The Sabbath ritual was just some trial by fire to gather a whole bunch of potential candidates, in this case Haruto ended up being the single individual who didn't give into despair is able to become a mages. Now, he makes Phantoms attack Gates, in the chance that a mage is created instead of a Phantom.
Koyomi actually survive the Sabbath ritualBut her phantom escaped and has the ability to suck life force out of people. Destroying the phantom will turn Koyomi into a completely normal person.
The next Monster of the Week (the Legion Phantom) can disable magic completely.Only Kamen Rider Wizard Infinity is immune to its effect.
Gremlin is going to replace Wiseman and become the True Final Boss near the end of the seriesGremlin seems to have a bit too much ambition for the writers to just abandon as a monster of the week later on. Also, he bears a striking resemblance to Cazali from OOO. (Also JK from Fourze, but irrelevant) They were pretty much the schemers and trolls in a way. Also remember that he was the guy who got the most core medals at one point before biting the dust.
Mayu will become a female Kamen RiderBut only as a movie exclusive, because tradition states that. She'll probably be more of an apprentice character if she is not booted out of the series, since magic training from scratch might take a while.
Mayu will come back as a new Kamen RiderOnly to get killed by Wiseman or Medusa quite easily. This will cause Haruto go on a Roaring Rampage of Revenge while also giving the White Wizard a What the Hell, Hero? moment.
The Dragon Styles are dead like with Fang Joker (see WMG for that theory of why it's no longer attained)With the lack of a Dragon to power it up, there's no use for a Dragon Style, though if Dragon comes back, it might not be in a way that can still be used with Dragon Styles... though this may be jossed soon.
Gremlin is on his own side, with his goal being to find the truthMuch like Kaji in Neon Genesis Evangelion, Gremlin is playing all sides, good or evil, to get closer to the truth (in this case, what the deal is behind the Sabbath, Wizards, and Philosopher's Stone), even it it will get him killed.
Legion is based off of a DragoonHe wields a spear, his armor is fairly streamlined, and the head resembles the open mouth of a Dragon, like most Final Fantasy Dragoons. Specifically similar to Kain Highwind. Plus, he kills Wizar Dragon with a jump and stab through the head. The reference can't be an accident.
The children from episode 30 will wind up being the key to Haruto getting his magic backWhether through faith in him, extreme motivation, or perhaps having some innate magic of their own, the children will come to help Haruto in his showdown with Legion
The final battle with Legion takes place on the Sabbath site.If you watch the preview, it looks a lot like the beach where the Sabbath flashbacks occur.
One Philosopher's Stone is made up of phantomsLots of phantoms.
The Philosopher's Stone was used in the first Sabbath to create the phantoms
Koyomi is the Philosopher's StoneThink about it.
Gremlin's first order of business as Wiseman's Dragon will be.....that all Phantoms must go by their Gate's name. If only to annoy the heck out of Medusa more than he already is.
Gremlin is a half-phantom, half-human.He did not actually kill and take over his human host (Sora) during the Sabbath ritual. Instead, they both somehow merged.
Koyomi's Phantom is...
Phoenix will return as a One-Winged Angel in the final episodeEvery time he dies, he gets stronger. So, naturally, he'll become so strong, that he'll be able to escape the sun.
Gremlin is lying.He is a trickster after all, and he may just be playing the human in a Phantom body shtick to either manipulate everyone else or just get in their heads.
Gremlin is gonna bite it by the end of #35It's building up his character, much like Phoenix, so he might get himself killed like he did.
Wiseman will bring Haruto to an ultimate despairBy simply saying that all the phantoms could have been saved. Haruto have murder a lot of innocent lives already.
A Phantom's humanity depends on their kindness as a humanA comment on episode 35 made this point. Phoenix and Medusa were shown to be nice people when they were human. However, Sora was a Serial Killer, and for some reason, kept his humanity. Basically, the more evil you were, the more control you get.
Medusa will be Gremlin's next target.Medusa has long black hair, just like all of Sora's other victims, and the two have a somewhat strained relationship. Maybe he will wait until the two are alone or until Medusa is weakened before finishing her offf.
Raum is behind the arson!It magically make fire to frame his Gate target.
